    The partners of this system connected by a Medical Treatment Network that based on the International Telecommunication Network and administrated by Digital Hospital which is an interface between all the hospitals in and outside Oman. This system is developed in client-server architecture with a powerful security features. The prototype design, requirements, description, and security of the system are discussed in this paper.
